This week on Comes A Time, Mike and Oteil are joined by comedian Ted Alexandro. Ted tells the guys about his current tour with Jim Gaffigan, why he enjoys meeting different people from different worlds through his standup career, and the rewarding challenge of closing for Roger Waters and Cornel West at a gig. The guys also discuss Ted’s progressive religious background, similarities between musical improvisation and standup, how Ted created his last special from combining clips from several different shows, and a story of encouragement that Ted received from Dave Attell during the beginning of his career.
Ted Alexandro is a stand-up comedian from New York City. He has appeared on Late Night with David Letterman, Conan, and has hosted his own specials on Comedy Central. Time Out NY listed Ted as one of 21 New York Comedy Scene Linchpins, calling him "a New York fixture as firm as bedrock." Ted’s career has spanned over twenty years, and during that time he has opened for legendary acts including Chuck Berry, Smokey Robinson, Craig Ferguson, Dennis Miller, and Joan Rivers. Ted’s work, including his recent release titled Cut/Up, is available on YouTube, as well as all music and podcast streaming platforms.
